[infobox subtitle=”How-to Dress Like Fashion’s Best” bg=”orange” color=”black” opacity=”off” space=”30″ link=”http://thelodown.com/fashion/halloween-fashion-part-1/”]This is a Man’s World[/infobox]

12 days, people! 12 days! The excitement, at this point, is uncomfortably overbearing. Frankly, the sheer thought of Halloween has the entire Lo Down team schvitzing from head to toe. It’s proving rather difficult to contain our fever for candy and clothes fashion-foward costumes.

Because we’re overachievers, and because we’d hate to disappoint, we thought we’d take an interesting spin on part 2 of our 3-part Halloween fashion series. Enter: your guide to emulating the world’s most fashionable men!

Come on, Ladies! October 31st isn’t just a free pass to play dress up. Au contraire, it’s an opportunity to own/win/beat men at menswear. What about the slut-factor, you ask? Darling, skimpy outfits are soo 2013. We assure you, what we’ve prepared puts sexy in a whole new ball game. Think Carrie at Anthony and Stanford’s wedding. Intrigued? Keep reading!

Karl Lagerfeld[show_lookbook_widget id=”166780″]

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.”

Karl, oh Karl. Where to even begin? The German artist, photographer—not to mention, head designer and creative director of Chanel, Fendi, and his own fashion label is best known for his black sunglasses, trademark white hair, and high-collared shirts. To achieve his signature look, you’re going to need a minimalist suit/tie combo, larger-than-life sunglasses, fingerless gloves, tasteful bling, and a pompadour-ed ponytail. Extra points if you’re able to get your hands on sold-out Karl Barbie, limited-edition wait list-heavy “Karlito” by Fendi, and/or a Choupette replica of some sort.

Bill Cunningham[show_lookbook_widget id=”166784″]

“The best fashion show is definitely on the street. Always has been, always will be.”

Does the New York Time‘s Sunday Styles ring a bell? This American fashion photographer is celebrated for his street style photography and attention to detail. A blue jacket or blazer, a monochromatic button-up of choice, khakis, a camera, a bike, and perma-smile will do just the trick.

Jean-Michel Basquiat[show_lookbook_widget id=”166788″]

“I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.”

Jean-Michel Basquiat was a graffiti artist who took the 1980s New York art scene by storm. In his short 27-year life, he collaborated with Andy Warhol, dated Madonna, modeled for Comme des Garçons, and starred in a Blondie music video. While no longer with us today, he is best remembered as the artist who painted in high-priced designer suits. Fancy Schmancy. Opt for a printed and/or colorful suit paired with an equally catchy bow-tie. Think edgy. Think cool. If it helps, his graffiti retails at $48.8 million. Yup.

Neal Caffrey [show_lookbook_widget id=”166796″]

“Always the con man, never the con. Look how far that’s gotten me.”

Although a fictional character on USA’s White Collar, Neal has single-handedly brought “sexy back.” To emulate this con man’s devilishly handsome style you’ll need a simple fitted suit, a tie, accessories, and a trusty fedora. The attention here is in the details. His watch, cufflinks, tie clip, and pocket square all contribute towards his permanent 5 o’clock shadow.

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
